Subject: Worth Watching
Short, succinct movie about censorship. Everyone who has written a review has a point, whether they have given it one star or 5 stars. I am giving it 5 stars because it brings an important subject to our attention. Someone needs to watch the watchers, ever vigilant.
This is why librarians celebrate Banned Books day, to honor our concept of free speech.

Subject: Censorship is ugly
Has anyone told California about this?

There are moves to limit free speech (swearing) at work.

I also mention that Obama wants to regulate speech on the Internet. He also wants to force the FCC to issue fines to Radio and TV stations that do not have diversity in programming.


Click is the right thing to do when you can't find a valid place to present your views. Do not force anyone to pay for "Net Neutrality", diversity media or restricting the Internet. If the Dear Leaders of the country don't want to listen to their people, (such as Healthcare) then they shouldn't be in office.

You can keep Stern, and someone should turn a hose on Whoopy Goldberg.

Sometimes it is a corporate conspiracy. This time it's not. I like TV not being a complete bombardment of pornography and bad language. You might find censorship from advertisers not wanting to offend their customers.

As battered as we are, most of us don't embrace the counterculture. If we ever did, we grew up.

"We can't keep quiet".. Ah shut up!

HAte laws are unconstitutional. They defend pedophiles, pederasts etc. The Jews and their minions would destroy America. Geo Washington, Thom Jefferson are rolling in their graves over this.

Subject: A delusional portrayal of a real problem.
The FCC has gone far beyond the functional administration which was originally intended to ensure accessibility to limited communication channels. The FCC has done so much beyond its legitimate authority that a full movie should be possible using only literal cases of government oppression.

But the producers of this movie can't help stacking on their irrational anger over lesser, and in some cases non-existent, issues.

This line is particularly moronic:
"censorship is initiated by rich corporate powers"

When individuals comply with the FCC, they are victims. When corporations comply with the FCC, they are "rich corporations" who "initiate censorship". The producer of this video just can't resist placing "the corporations" on the badguy list, even though they have been fined millions of dollars.

Michael Moore was rejected by one distributor, but accepted by another. Why should any specific corporation have to distribute a movie if they don't want to? What about their freedom? Where is the "censorship?" Is it censorship if you don't get your way the first time you ask for it? Does the narrator think that it would be a crime if Disney chose not to back a pro-Bush movie?

Subject: The erosion of our rights
When the Nazis came for the communists,
I remained silent;
I was not a communist.

When they locked up the social democrats,
I remained silent;
I was not a social democrat.

When they came for the trade unionists,
I did not speak out;
I was not a trade unionist.

When they came for the Jews,
I remained silent;
I wasn't a Jew.

When they came for me,
there was no one left to speak out.
